I choose to call my family’s Christmas movie collection “flicks” rather than movies because some aren’t really movies; they’re TV Specials on DVD (even some on VHS), but we put them in our movie collection.

We have so many flicks that my hubby says that if we watch one a day, we will have to start watching in October and still wouldn’t have seen them all by Christmas. (I think he exaggerates a bit.)

As part of our Advent celebrations we watch a flick a night (when possible, sometimes 2 if they are short ones). We don’t always have popcorn or chips because that would just be too much every night. Sometimes though we eat dinner in front of the TV as a treat.

As a family, we have some MUST-see favourites – Elf, Santa Claus series, Ernest Saves Christmas, and Christmas Vacation. Hubby likes to watch Die Hard and I have to see The Ref and Miracle on 34th Street.

If you don’t own the flicks you can always see what’s playing on TV and plan a few nights (with popcorn, etc) and make it a special event – it’s all part of the anticipation of Christmas.
